North Sweden Cleantech has developed into the unifying force for green development in a dynamic growth region, it is the climate-smart innovation site of the future. In Västerbotten and Örnsköldsvik there are a multitude of small and medium-sized companies that are at the forefront of climate- and environmentally friendly solutions.
– It feels great that we have taken on the role of the natural catalyst that makes visible and strengthens companies for sustainable growth. It is a market in which we will see continued large investments, says Peter Hedman, project manager for North Sweden Cleantech.
The term cleantech includes business ideas, companies, products and services within green technology, clean energy and sustainable solutions. As a regional innovation and export platform with employees in Skellefteå, Umeå and Örnsköldsvik, North Sweden Cleantech aims to strengthen the region and its companies and develop the market for sustainable growth with green technology and clean energy from northern Sweden. During almost ten years of work to make visible and communicate the three focus areas – bioeconomy, energy and smart and sustainable cities – development has almost exploded.
This is precisely what drives countries forward to become climate-smart. We need to take this development to countries that are lagging behind in the climate issue. Give more countries the conditions to convert the automotive industry to electric cars and then not only passenger cars but also heavy traffic will be electrified and for that we need to invest in and build out charging stations and charging infrastructure. Here, software companies can help develop adaptive charging software for electric cars.
